Hoppus’s widely used set of tables for measuring and costing building materials was revised at the beginning of the nineteenth edition by the York schoolmaster Thomas Crosby. The first edition revised by Crosby seems to have appeared in 1803, and more than one identically paginated edition followed, including the present one.
